Sheffield Elephants vs Hull moths

Points for Sheffield

  1. Bigger scale and more 3D than moths so more area for design.
  2. As 3D and at ground level could engage with them more; stroke them, or give them a pat on the way past or children could crawl between their legs, of course it was strictly forbidden to sit on them but think there is a few people with pictures of themselves or their children sitting on them. Could even look through the bely of the Steel Elephant.
  3. Better app because recognized in locations without having to scan QR code.
  4. Better signs next to elephants which gave information about design and designers unlike minimal signs next to the moths (apart from the moth at Sheffield university that had a full board next to it).
  5. Moths had little variation on theme yes, more constrained brief but surprised not to see more about insect moths for example how a caterpillar turns into a moth.
  6. Bigger variety of locations. All moths were hung on walls insdie or outside buildings. Whereas elephants were in a walled garden, in a winter garden and in farms and more.
  7. There was a mini herd of elephants whereas no mini moths.
  8. Elephants signed by snooker players and members of Arctic Monkeys.
